Biography

Marie Daulne, the founder and fronting member of Zap Mama since the early 1990s, has lived a life that rivals Homer’s Odyssey. Filled with peril and triumph, globe-spanning quests, and a series of personal achievements that seem almost heroic in scope, her story is one of epic proportions in the annals of world music. She stands with one foot firmly planted in tradition and the other in ... Read more in Amazon's Zap Mama Store

Format: Audio CD
aka Adventures in Afropea. This is Marie Daulne's African inspired group's first album (from 1993?). It predominantly features the polyphonic style of singing learned from the forest peoples of the Congo (originally named pygmies). The voice is purely the instrument on these songs and you are lifted up, twirled around, dropped and picked up again by the sheer artistry of this group. I love Abadou- inspired by a Syrian song about a man crying over one of his wives who's done a runner from his harem. The modern spiritual "Bottom" is about a sinking boat and was written by Jean-Louis Daulne (brother I think). Mizike is a work song- based on the chant of women beating clothes on rocks in Zaire- a call to forget material possessions and to be imspired by Mr Music. the final song links us to Marie Daulne's European half of her ancestry with a 16th century Spanish song "Din Din."

The ladies are crazy and delightful. And the titles are just right: I love Mupepe! Beautiful harmonies, this is the magic of Africa.

I saw Zap Mama years ago at a WOMAD gig and this is exactly what they were like then. I love it and it brings back old memories.

Amazing! 30 April 2000
By "cur" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
What can I say? Smooth, rythmic,beautiful and fluid voices united singing pure R/B /reggae and hip hopish melodies in french...Sexy is an understatement. If you like Eryka Badu, De'angelo or The Roots you will love this album. Quality music! Buy it! own it! It will give you many hours of joy!
Rich Vocal "Soup" for the Soul!! 16 May 2007
By Jo Windmill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I used to own this Cd years ago, and then it disappeared. I just bought another copy, and what pleasure to re-discover the pure richness of this original Zap Mama album. Totally accoustic, warmly and intimately recorded, these extraordinary women serve up an uplifting soup of vocal blends, African and Euro melodic delights, and mind-boggling percussive feats.

Simply yummy listening, infectious melodies, and an over-all joyous atmosphere.

Totally recommend to anyone into accapella, world music, intricate vocal sounds and woman's music.

I first became exposed to this group while living in France. The vocals are beautiful. Some of the songs are almost lullabies
